Tonight was the first official patrol of the Miracle Mile Safety Patrol.
Eight people volunteered tonight and we split into two and then three different groups to cover more of the neighborhood.
Many thanks to Sergeant Kirby of the LAPD who patrolled our neighborhood and spoke to us both before and after the patrol.
We also stopped at a neighborhood restaurant/bar for a little social time after 11pm.
We're still working out the details of the patrol - but all 8 people have officially committed to at least 2 hours a month. But we need you! We'd like to have at least 4 people go out on patrol.
We also have the option of bike patrols. It might be fun for a group of us to bike around the neighborhood and cover more ground.
Our jackets and hats will arrive soon - if you told me your size you will have one soon.
So far everyone has committed to the following nights and times. We need more people for each night. If you can commit to just one two hour shift a month - can you make it the same night each month? This will make scheduling much easier. For example - if you can do this, please write me and say "I will commit to the first Saturday of each month" or something like that...
Here are the shifts people have already signed up for - we need more people on these nights.
Friday midnight - 2am
Friday 10pm - midnight
Saturday midnight - 2am
Please let me know if you can commit to one of these shifts and if there's a particular time of month each month that you can commit to - we'll schedule you for that.
Thanks very much!
